Fake News MSNBC, CBS and others ignore biggest story of the new year
Code words ‘lucky numbers,’ ‘lucky figures’ and ‘cake’ are key pieces of the puzzle that may finally unravel Bill and Hillary Clinton’s pay for play schemes. But why do the mainstream media, aka Fake News, miss highlighting one of the biggest stories of the new year?
On Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, at 4 p.m. Central Standard Time, the Department of Justice announced they were charging Mark Lambert, the former president of a company specializing in nuclear transportation services, with “one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering.”
According to the DOJ, Lambert conspired to “make corrupt and fraudulent bribery and kickback payments to offshore bank accounts associated with shell companies, at the direction of, and for the benefit of, a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages.”
It was the Washington Post, considered by many to be a non-mainstream media organization that reported on Jan. 13, that “the Obama administration cleared a business deal that gave a Russian company control of 20 percent of the US uranium industry.” This is what is now known as the Uranium One scandal. “A grand jury brought 11 counts of money laundering and wire fraud against Mark Lambert, the former head of a Maryland transportation company.”
According to the Post, the indictment “says Lambert tried to conceal the payments with the code words ‘lucky figures,’ ‘lucky numbers’ and ‘cake.’
Lambert’s aim was to win contracts to ship uranium to the US.”
Regardless of these new revelations, the liberal media do what they consistently do, by snubbing this story. The media seem to be unending in their loyal cover up for the Clinton Foundation and any possibility that there could be a connection to these newly released details. It doesn’t look like Americans will be able to depend on the mainstream media and reporters to properly research and report on the Clinton/Russia/Uranium One scandal.
The FBI recently announced that it had launched a new investigation into the Clinton Pay-to-Play Scheme and the media responded with virtual widespread unresponsiveness. According to NewsBusters, “the FBI is investigating whether the foundation was a part of a pay-to-play scheme in conjunction with Hillary Clinton’s State Department.” The probe is examining whether the Clintons promised any policy favors in exchange for donations or whether donors made commitments to the Clintons in order to procure certain outcomes from the government.
The media should be jumping on this story of corruption and bribery at the highest levels of power, but rather has practically dismissed it. MSNBC rejected the story as “fake news” and a “political sideshow”. On CBS This Morning, New York Times editor Kathleen Kingsbury rejected the investigation, calling it a “political vendetta brought on by the White House.”
“Any voter outside the Clinton bubble who negotiated their way around the who-cares media in 2016 could clearly see that the Clintons over the decades filled a 50-car train of scandal baggage,” said the non-partisan Media Research Center President Brent Bozell. “But our ‘real news’ reporters live in perpetual denial.”
Instead of investigating and covering all major stories with the intensity Americans wants, the liberal media is more fascinated with their small controversies, such as President Donald Trump’s language in private meetings, or the size of First Lady’s heels when she disembarks on trip to support Hurricane recovery efforts.
